More and more UGA departments and organizations are turning to social networking sites to reach out to students and alumni. Electronic media offers an immediacy that can’t be matched by print publications. And as state budgets continue to dwindle, magazine Web sites, Facebook pages and blogs are a more financially efficient way to stay in touch with alumni. Funding cuts have forced Georgia Magazine to trim its distribution list significantly in the past year. Fortunately, all of the content in the print magazine, as well as slide shows, additional photos and web-exclusive stories, is available on the magazine’s Web site.
The UGA Alumni Association also has been using electronic media to reach graduates. The association sends out a monthly e-newsletter as well as occasional reminders and updates about events. The emails are available to any alumnus, not just association members.
The Visitors Center maintains one of the university’s most active institution-wide social media sites.
The Visitors Center Facebook page is updated frequently with fun facts about the university as well as helpful information for students, alumni and potential new Bulldogs. You can see it at http://facebook.com/visitUGA.
